A real, hands-on digger experience

The Yanmar Museum was established in Shiga Prefecture, the birthplace of Yanmar’s founder, to celebrate the centenary of the company’s establishment. The museum has real tractors, diggers, and pleasure boats on display, not just for looking at, but also for touching, climbing aboard, and operating.
The most popular activity is the hands-on digger experience, where people can control a real digger to play a ball-scooping game.
With staff on hand, even small children can take part.
